The Fashion Of Football: Soccer From Best To Beckham, From Mod To Label Slave

Paolo Hewitt & Mark Baxter

ISBN: 1840188073
224 pp
Music and style journalist Paolo Hewitt and friend Mark Baxter decided to chart a neglected theme running through modern football history: The clothes.

From the wildly dressed George Best in the swinging sixties to the Armani-ed Premiership boys of today, sartorial style has accompanied footballers in England. And running parallel to the players' styles is the story of the fans' attire

The Fred Perry and Tacchini tops of the 1970's through the 'casual' looks of the eighties to today's Stone Island-clad lads is an equally important part of England's football culture that completes the picture of football culture.

But this is as much a book about style and youth culture itself than its football-related history, written in a free and unchained style, where Soho's Bar Italia rubs shoulders with 1960's London boutiques, '70's mods, Rodney Marsh and David Beckham.
